Feasibility study being conducted to transmit geothermal energy to Martinique & Guadeloupe from Dominica

Government is currently conducting a feasibility study financed by the European Investment Bank to look at the under seas cable to transmit energy to Martinique and Guadeloupe upon completion of its geothermal project.

The Government signed a 15 million dollar contract with an Iceland Company for exploration of geothermal energy from Dominica.

The 120 megawatt plant will cost approximately $400 million dollars.

Prime Minister Skerrit believes this will bring tremendous economic benefits to the country.

Meantime former energy Minister Reginald Austrie says the exploration of geothermal energy for Dominica has been in discussion for several years and Dominicans should welcome the fact it is now becoming a reality.
